I don't disagree with what you say, however, we took out Libya's "eyes/ears" with stand-off weapons. Upwards of 200 Tomahawks. Then pinpoint bombing. Wherever Qaddaffi tried to bring up his commo? Boom!

But I do agree that Syria has 100s of AA Weapons.

Our laser guided bombs took out the Thanh Hoa Bridge in 1972, after bombing it with conventional bombs for 7 years prior...Syria would be no cake walk, but it can be done. Obi needs to do something. Maybe another "Monica bombing?"

Tomahawks and stand off systems yes. stealth, since the F-117 is retired, the F-35 still trying to make it into production and the F-22 designed for air superoirity and having problems with its oxygen systems, are “No Go.”

My main point is that Syria will not be as easy as Libya from an air war aspect. The land options are: 1 - to go in through the small area of Syrian coast line and fight our way to Damascus; 2 - land in Lebanon and fight (?) our way through it to get to Syria; 3 - go in through Israel and that opens up, I can’t even begin to imagine what.
